If it's so loud that you can hear from the next house, maybe you can call the police for a noise violation...? That's a thing, right?
There are probably local noise ordinances that will help you. Try asking them nicely to please keep their rehearsals to a decent hour (or invest in some soundproofing). If they don't, go over again and tell them the next time it happens you will be calling the police. And then if it happens again make sure you follow through. If there's one thing I can't stand it's inconsiderate neighbors.
Correct me if I'm wrong here ... But I don't think you can sue for that reason in most places.
It depends on the area. My dad worked with homebuyers/sellers and depending on the area there were different clauses in the contract that said things like this had to be disclosed. It was common in a lot of small towns, but not really in cities. I don't think suing is the way to go though. Deal with the people causing the noise.
